    The vouchers are being offered to help improve air quality. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that a gas-powered mower emits the same level of pollution on an hourly basis as 11 cars.

    Those wishing to obtain a voucher need to contact the city of Plano. The cities of Allen and Richardson are also participating in the program.

    The gasoline mowers will be exchanged at the Live Green Expo on April 18 at the Plano Centre.
